Peak colors reaching final destinations in New York City and Finger Lakes
This is the ninth and final 2016 Fall Foliage Report for New York State. Reports are obtained from field observers and reflect expected color conditions for the coming weekend.
Another magnificent fall foliage season in New York State draws to a close this weekend as peak colors reach their final destinations in New York City and the Finger Lakes.
Look for peak foliage in New York City this weekend. Muted shades of orange, yellow and red predominate and there is some leaf droppage. In the Finger Lakes, look for 90 percent leaf change and peak to past peak conditions in Yates County. Brilliant yellow leaves, along with some brown leaves, predominate as the red and orange leaves fade. Foliage in Rochester will be past peak to peak this weekend.
Spotters predict nearly complete leaf transition for the weekend with bright and beautiful yellow leaves with touches of red, orange and green.
On Long Island, foliage spotters in Nassau County reporting from East Meadow expect near complete leaf change and peak to just past peak yellow, orange, purple and brown leaves of average brilliance. Suffolk County leaf peepers checking in from Riverhead expect peak to just past peak foliage this weekend with yellow, orange, red, purple and brown leaves of average brilliance.
Other areas of the state are now past peak.
